What is eco-leather?
The leather straps are made from natural German Organic eco-leather. The leather has been tanned with pure vegetable agents. The colors are free of any heavy metals and without chrome. All dyes have been certified by the International Association of Natural Textiles (IVN), the Association of Organic Agriculture and the ECARF (European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation). The IVN certification is rated as the most sophisticated textile label among environmentalists and consumer protection groups and the ECARF has for the first time certified a leather as allergy-friendly.
The surface has neither been coated with harmful synthetics, nor has the leather been resized.
Therefore the leather is showing its genuine natural character, which emphasizes the individuality and naturalness of the leather.
Because of the pores the leather is especially breathable and kind to the skin. The under part of the band completely undyed. This color is only caused by the colour of the vegetable tanning agents.
Each strap is also padded using a natural cork material and stitched with yarn certified to the strictest Ökotex 100 standard.
